How to guides

VODA’s Digital Champion’s project worked with with volunteers during the pandemic to deliver digital outreach support to with people who already had a tablet/smart phone/computer and an internet connection, to make the best use of their device. 

As part of this project, volunteers created a number of digital how-to guides to help people to navigate certain tasks online.

This project has now concluded (with digital outreach now provided by North Tyneside Council), but you can still view and download the how-to guides below.

For further digital support, North Tyneside Council is offering volunteer supported digital outreach.
